Music Notes

  • In the song “Doo Wah Diddy Diddy”, am I the only one who hears “I’m hurt, she’s mad, wedding bells are gonna chime”?
  • Mahler No. 5 is pretty damn good. It took me about 5 years to get around to listening to it, for some reason.
  • Was also listening to Schubert No. 9 on repeat last night. If I die before I see Vertiginous Thrill of Exactitude live, I’ll be so pissed. And dead. But also pissed. I wonder if it’ll ever be performed in a non-gala event.
  • Getting the itch to start up violin again, but I don’t know if I have the time or energy.
